HELP!!! I've got artist block. Bad.

Throw me some ideas that you think would be cool in a painting. I got nuthin'. I can't guarantee I'll paint any one particular subject or idea, but I will paint something (or a combination of somethings) from this thread. I'm hurtin' here otter people and I need a muse.
It can be things, themes, morals...anything you can think of will probably help.

You should paint a meadow in the Spring with a doe playfully prancing away from her mother while a hunter pulls an arrow taught in his bow, patiently awaiting the right moment to release death on the mother deer, not because he needs the food, not because he needs the hide for clothing, but because he lives a sheltered, boring life in the city and he comes out to the wilderness twice a year in a vain effort to reclaim his manhood, which has been battered and twisted out of him by his domineering mother, with whom he still lives, because he can't find a job that pays more than minimum wage due to his dropping out of school because of his methamphetamine addiction, all the while he is whispering the lyrics to the "bananaphone" song because he heard it while browsing DVD Talk and he can't get it out of his head, the fucking bastards who keep posting it won't get out of his head, and he raises his bow, imagining that someday he will find those posters and drive an arrow into them, but for now the deer will have to do and then he has a heart attack and dies.

namo, you left out any imagery about beer in your wonderful thought. That's the only thing missing.

Kudama, if you need inspiration for a painting, give me a holler and I'll do some nude modeling for you.



I assume you have some teeny-tiny paint brushes.

How about an old man sitting on a milk crate fishing from a pier.

I've always liked paintings with glass or shiny objects in which you can see a reflection or something (either the artist or the rest of the room). Hard to pull off well.

Of course, flowers are blooming now so there's lot of opportunities for natural landscapes or artistic close ups.

What is your style - do you prefer to paint from life, a photograph, or your mind?
